Caught in the Crossfire This fast-paced novel imagines events leading up to a race riot in a northern town. Local antipathies are exploited by a National Front-type group in the aftermath of 9/11, impacting on the lives of Rabia and Tahir, children of a mixed race British Muslim family, and Liam and Mike Kelly, white teenagers, who are drawn into the escalating racial tensions with tragic consequences. Written in short dramatic sections interweaving multiple points of view, with realistic dialogue and characterisation, the novel will appeal to older readers.
